As all roads lead to our other store in Kagiso this Sunday. It was only fitting to tell a little story about the store, now that it is up and running after the launch in March 2015.
The first thing that comes to mind when you think about the Thesis store in KAGISO, is from nothing to something. How a container stands on what used to be a dumping site. You can only think of how smart the concept is and give these gents a round of applause. Taking what many in the hood know the purpose of a container to sell amagwinya or a Cell C public phone booth.
Talking to Sbu Maloya the store manager, who is quite the talkative and assertive guy says “KAGISO is something else you know. How the community of KAGISO has responded to the Thesis store is humbling. Amagenge wase kasi ayeza lana bazo bloma the whole day. Its like any other hood, there is no dull moment here”
On a typical day, KAGISO is really unpredictable. Literally anything could happen. This is known by how amagents would want to hang around the store then all of a sudden there are more people and it becomes a chillas outside. The Thesis Kagiso is surrounded by its own culture and lifestyle that doesn’t need to be fux’d with. And it is nothing compared to the store in Mofolo. So it is only right that we let you experience the Thesis KAGISO store on its own without the help of the Mofolo stores culture. But keeping to the lifestyle of Thesis, Kagiso has its own run cru as well as individuals that come and cycle too.
